The original cats only had one fold in their ears, but due to selective breeding farmers have increased the fold to double or triple crease that causes the ear to lie totally flat against the head.
"Typical of the breed's ears folded produced by incomplete dominant gene that affects the ear cartilage, causing the ears to fold forward and downward, giving the appearance that such a cap to the head. The smaller, tightly folded ears set in a cap-like more preferred to fold and larger ear loose. That is, large round eyes and rounded heads, cheeks, and add whiskers bearing rounded appearance overall.

The typical lifespan of a Scottish Fold is 15 years. Scottish folds are susceptible to polycystic kidney disease (PKD), and cardiomyopathy.
Osteochondrodysplasia is believed to be caused by or linked to the dominant (folded-ear) gene. If both parents have folded ears, their kittens will be extremely likely (1:4 ratio, virtually guaranteeing at least one per litter) to be affected by malformed bone structures and develop severe painful degenerative joint diseases. This condition can also affect Scottish Folds with one copy of the gene, but usually to a much lesser extent. While ethical breeders breed Fold/non-fold and not Fold/Fold (in the same way Munchkins are bred) to reduce the problem,even those with one copy of the gene develop progressive arthritis of varying severity, leading one vet to recommend abandoning the breeding of folded cats entirely. For this reason the breed is not accepted by either the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy or the Federation Internationale Feline.
